Glam Halloween Charger Plates From Dollar Store Platter

I hosted a Halloween Dinner Party a few years ago and thought I would create a fun tablescape for my guests. Having hosted several Halloween parties over the years, I had plenty of things to set the mood. I had bought a few of these skull platters at Dollar Tree for a past party and saw that they still carried them this year. They are over-sized and meant to serve food on…the perfect size to be a dinner plate charger! Hope you like my Glam Halloween Charger Plates From Dollar Store Platter!

Using a paint brush…paint the area you want to glitter with Mod Podge – I left the eye sockets clear.

Over a paper plate, sprinkled the glitter generously on the painted skull and let them sit until dry. Once dry, take a clean, dry paint brush and gently brushed off any extra glitter. Place a rhinestone in each eye. So easy!

I reused my Glam Skull Candle Holders, from a past Halloween, along with a piece of sparkly fabric as a tablecloth.

I found these glittery foam spiderwebs at Joann Fabrics and thought they would be perfect to lay over my beaded coasters. These skull rings were perfect to add to the stemware!

  1. Beautiful!

    Although, I’d be nervous about putting glitter that close to my food. I wonder if you could glitter the underside of the skulls…

    1. Hi Ava! I was a little nervous about the glitter near the food as well, but I served the food on dinner plates and it actually cover a good amount of the glitter skulls up. The food would not have really come in contact with the glitter. I did take one charger and cover the glitter with Mod Podge…this worked well at sealing the glitter although it made it a little dull. I did do a test of the glitter under the plates and it did not show through. Looks like we think alike!
